The concept of ‘co-production’ is emerging as a radical challenge to existing approaches to local economic development and the delivery of welfare and public services. As part of the Hidden Work research programme with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the New Economics Foundation organized three expert seminars on co-production. Each one was framed by an essay that set some of the challenges thrown up by this new idea. These essays, The downside of full employment, The best medicine: can the NHS go beyond illness?, and Natural resources: Older people at home alone, were collectively written by David Boyle, Sherry Clarke and Sarah Burns.
